SPICY MINI PRAWNS FRY

This is the fabulous dish thats just perfect as an appetizers or a snack. I adopted this recipe from one of my hubbies friend 'ANIL'. Hez expert in cooking specially preparing non veg items. We offen have a gettogether on weekends at our home or their home. So his recipe will be there for sure :). He prepares the recipe with raw medium prawns or shrimps. But I taught of giving a try on mini cooked prawns which also tasted delicious. The real flavour comes when its cooked and fryed in Coconut oil.



INGREDIENTS.

1 LB Cooked mini prawns.

1 1/2 Cup Chopped Shallots.

2 tbsp Chilli Powder.

1 tsp Turmeric Powder.

1 tsp Hing.

2 tbsp Lemon juice.

1 tsp Grounded Pepper.

Few Curry leaves.

3 tbs Coconut oil.

Salt to taste.

METHOD.

Marinate prawns with chilli pd, turmeric pd, hing, lemon juice, pepper and salt. Let it sit for half an hour.

In a kadai, add 3 tbs of oil and fry the shallots. Once its half cooked add the curry leaf and marinated prawns. Mix well under low flame to uniformly incorporate everything.


Fry nearly for 15 to 20 min till they are slighty crispy. At the time of removing from flame, drizzle extra coconut oil on the top.

Serve hot.

Hi Suma,
It's my first time here, but definitely not going to be my last one. Hmm.. we actually neighbor eh? not literally, I live close by your cupertino.

Your dish sounded really delicious, my husband dislike shrimps/prawns, maybe I can substitute this with something else. I myself really like shrimps/prawns, so maybe I just make this for myself....
Cheers,
elra
